the clouds tend to regulate and keep the numbers close together. and basically 63 to 70. and these numbers though compared to yesterday, yes that's right, it's cooler. a little cooler this afternoon. so likely not the 70s but hey, the normal high is 57. so way above that. and 78 and 23 the records. sunsets at 4:48. not a lot of sun but breaks now and then. and the record, we're going to see records tomorrow, probably not in newark. the old record is 80. we are forecasting 77 tomorrow. but we could tie the record in the city. and we could break the record at laguardia and jfk. parts of new jersey could hit 80 degrees tomorrow. that's the normal high for the 17th of september. so a late summer feel tomorrow. and the rain dan is talking about through nassau county, north shore and fairfield county as well. and another batch into morris county. and more showers. and then this is the big kind of upside down program that we're talking about.

combination of flavors and it's great for bake, eating out of things. make sure they have a nice beautiful shine to it. and it should have a mixture of color, dark red, some lighter red and a little bit of green and yellow. make sure it's not too green but definitely want the mixture. and now when you bring the apples home, a rule of thumb, i know they look beautiful on the counter and they give off the amazing scent but store them in the fridge. that way they keep the crispness and hold juices better and last longer. when it comes to eating them, out of hand, they're fantastic. great for you. nutritional power house, especially with fiber. but these apples bake very well. and i'm stephanie tantillo with your tip of the day. >> all right.
